For several months now, I’ve been conducting my own small recognition of the 74th anniversary of the end of World War II.

It wasn’t planned. It started with something as insignificant as watching a movie and thinking, “That isn’t the way I remember the book,” which led to skimming through “Unbroken,” which led to rereading the whole book all over again about the Olympic runner from California who ended up in the war.
